Windows 10: How do I get the old 'Classic' Network Menu back? Solved

    How do I get the old 'Classic' Network Menu back?

    I got the old sound volume and battery popups back, but how do I get them back for the Network Menu?

    Also I saw that the clock reg edit no longer works.

    Hello possom,

    If you like, you could use the method in the tutorial below to set the Network system icon on the taskbar notification area to open using the older Windows 8.1 style.

    Uh, yeah, I have no idea what I'm doing with permissions or what ever. Doesn't Winaero do this automatically?

    It's really not hard to do though. If you like, look at the instructions linked in the steps for how to do so, and I'll be happy to help with any questions you may have before trying it.

    Before doing this, you would want to create a restore point to be able to undo any mistake if made.

    I done all of the steps in the tuts, but it still wont let me edit it. Is Winaero safe to use?

    Got it. I seemed to be skipping a step. Thanks for the help. Now I I just need to figure out if there is a way to fix the clock.

    You're most welcome.

    I don't the clock will be possible anymore since the method to change it stopped working since Windows 10 build 14291.

    Enable or Disable New Clock and Calendar in Windows 10

    I'm sure there are several clock apps available in the Store that may be worth looking at to see if one may work for you.

    Hmm, would you know how to put the clock back in the corner?
